Fri, 23 May 2014 10:58:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James joined the team for voluntary workouts this week. James had previously been absent, subsequently forfeiting a $50,000 workout bonus in his contract.

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 11:54:20 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James showed some frustration on his Twitter account on his lack of touches in the team's Week 4 game against the St. Louis Rams. James had zero yards on only three carries against the Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for James, he's behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter on the depth chart and is unlikely to see meaningful totes unless one of them is injured. James should only be owned as running back depth in the deepest of leagues.

49ers | LaMichael James adds muscle

Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:05:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James added 10 pounds of leg muscle during the offseason, and he has been more explosive during spring practices. He is expected to be better in pass blocking situations, and he already has a good rapport with QB Colin Kaepernick. James should see plenty of time in the offense, and he has been improved as a punt returner, too.

Fantasy Tip: In fantasy leagues which reward individual return yardage, James will have some added value. However, unless Kendall Hunter (Achilles') struggles to re-gain his form, or Frank Gore suffers some sort of an injury which keeps him out of game action, the fantasy ceiling for James is rather limited.
